Ryan's Christening cake.....

I was thrilled when a friend asked me to make her son's Christening cake.  My first cake in the new kitchen! I had also made her baby shower cake months ago.  She liked it so much she went with the same flavor, Chocolate Chip White cake with Chocolate Swiss Meringue Buttercream. 

I was so excited to make the cake but the weather was working against me. The humidity for the past week seems like it's been 120%.  Fondant just doesn't like that.  It was one of those times when the cake gods just weren't smiling down on me. Don't get me wrong, I like how the cake turned out, but I had a lot of problems along the way. In the end the cake tasted amazing and my friend was happy.

  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Shandi, I can't tell you how thrilled we were with the cake. It was absolutely gorgeous and tasted just as amazing as the shower cake! The compliments keep on coming. I hope you're taking new orders because you may wind up with some... :-)
